Legacy of Death by Barbara Levy

I failed to mention another book arrived in the post this week (and yes, it was crammed in again, but the book emerged from the cardboard container unscathed).
I've been a bit absent minded, what with the house and everything.
Legacy of Death by Barbara Levy is the extra addition to my library.
It's a collection of anecdotes from the Sanson family. For seven generations they were France's executioners.
It's going to be a juicy read by all means. This book was recommended to me by Professor Bob, among other interests, he is a French history buff. I enjoyed Passionate Exiles (about the relationship between Madame De Staël and Madame Récammier by Maurice Levaillant) and this is something up the same alley.
